Tree Limb And Brush Removal

Due in part to the severe weather, both over the past Winter and this Spring and Summer, we have encountered a large amount of dead shrubbery, brush and tree limb.  We have done our best to keep up with the overflow, but wanted you to know that Waste Management will also dispose of this matter.  There are a few guidelines to follow for including this material with your regular trash pick-up:

  1. All limbs or shrubbery must be in lengths not to exceed four (4) feet.
  2. The refuse must be bundled and tied, in amounts that are manageable for one person.  Pay attention to the weight of your bundles.  If it is difficult for you to get to curb, it is probably too heavy for Waste Management to handle.
  3. Place the refuse on your tree lawn near your trash to avoid confusion, and the need for multiple or rolling stops.

We want to thank you for your cooperation.  The chipper truck will still make rounds of the City, but this is another option to dispose of this material.
